You didn't catch the point I was driving at, which is: You can't tell me that most people would've expected K-State to do what they have done the last couple years, otherwise, Vegas' expectations of them would've been bigger. So, exactly how do WhatIfSports' projections stand out for being ludicrous beyond MOST projections of K-State? They don't.
Your statement would be 100% correct if you say: "WhatIfSports' predicted record for KSU was inaccurate the past two seasons". But, when you add in a word like "laughably", it insinuates that most others knew K-State would go to the Fiesta Bowl & be a top notch team in 2012. It was far from a given in the preseason that they would be better than TCU, West Virginia, Texas, Oklahoma or Oklahoma State. So, again... what's so "laughable" about projecting them to lose to those teams?
